    Hi, I have found a delicious bread in Morrisons. Pricey at £1.60 . but worth it because "normal " breads send my BG through the roof. It,s called Livlife and at only 3.8 carbs per slice, I have 2 toasted with a poached egg for breakfast

    Purchased a piece of English lamb from Aldi, it was delicious could cut it with a butter knife and there was enough for four easily. Had it with fresh runner beans from the garden.

    Can anybody tell me if cheese is good to eat when you have type 2 diabetes,I know it's high in fat but I eat a lot of it as it seems to be my substitute to having snacks that are high in carbs or sugar

    Good Question! I'd like to know that as I'm having it as a savoury element in morning omelettes.

    I'd also recommend walnuts and/or pecans as tasty snacks thatkeep you going while lunch

    So far it's been coffee (cannot manage without some good coffee), one-egg omelette with a grating of cheese, I'll be snacking on walnuts.

    Lunch is braised oxtail, braised red cabbage and a little butternut squash.

    Tonight it'll be sea bass and prawns, with tomatoes and aubergine. If I can be bothered maybe some pickled cucumber. Glass of wine.
